Nerdy Musical Advent 2023 – 6th December – Sensitive Badass – The Doubleclicks

The Doubleclicks are frequent features on the Advent, probably cause I really, really like their music.

This one, well its not my favourite, but it is Lindsay’s, the first time she heard it, at the 77th WorldCon, Dublin 2o19, she cried her eyes out and then played it again and again for months (she still insists that she isn’t an autist).

And well, I have been meaning to include it, but it always got displaced by something else, but this time, I am sticking to my guns and its staying put here!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2023 – 5th December – Pac-Man Fever – Buckner & Garcia

This one is older than me, and really captures the very early days of video gaming when Pac-Man swept the world!

And lets face it Pac-Man is a fantastic game that has stood the test of time and its no wonder that Buckner & Garcia scored a hit with this one in 1981!

Interestingly they pioneered rerecording an album when the masters ownership was denied to them, and they rerecorded the whole Pac-Man Fever album (yes there is an album, and its worth a listen/download)

Nerdy Musical Advent 2023 – 4th December – Over The Hills and Far Away – John Tams

As a nerd who loves war games, and approaching a more mature age, there is a part of me that’s getting very interested in Napoleonic’s, probably doesn’t help that I recently rewatched Sharpe!

So here is a traditional British song, that was featured heavily in Sharpe, performed by folk singer John Tams, who also starred as Hagman in the series.

It also featured in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, which is also an excellent version of the song, which I am sharing because the John Tams version is sadly hard to find for online listening.

Nerdy Musical Advent 2023 – 3rd December – IKEA – Jonathan Coulton

Good old Jonathan Coulton is a regular feature of the nerdy advent, and this year is no different.

This time we bring you IKEA, a song about many peoples favourite furniture store, and its certainly one of mine, I mean, not only is the stuff great, my studio is a lot of IKEA stuff.

But also meatballs and hot dogs too!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2023 – 2nd December – Nrrrd Grrrl – MC Chris

Its been a long long while since we featured MC Chris, so lets rectify that now, with Nrrrd Grrrl

A great Nerdcore rap about a lot of girls we know, and none of us deserve, reminds me of both Megan and Lindsay.

Nerdy Musical Advent 2022 – 23rd December – Dancing Baby Groot – Kirby Krackle

Its been a long time since we featured Kirby Krackle and what better way to do so than we this song about dancing baby Groot!

Lets face it, it was the best MCU post credit scene thus far!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2022 – 23rd December – Desolation Row – My Chemical Romance

This is a rather mainstream cover of one of Bob Dylans greatest hit, but its a song which features a lot in Alan Moore’s Watchmen with the title of the first chapter “At Midnight All the Agents” being ripped from the lyrics.

Watchmen was one of the first serious comic I was introduced to, probably way way too young, but I still love it, my mum less so when I asked what a whore was on Christmas morning when I opened it!

Anyway, My Chemical Romance covered the song for the soundtrack to Zack Snyder’s film version of the story, which I enjoyed, but I know was controversial.

Nerdy Musical Advent 2022 – 21st December – World Eater – Bolt Thrower

If you are a person of a certain age, and we’re into Warhammer then this is a band you will be very familiar with!

Good old Bolt Thrower, a band so intertwined with the history of Games Workshop, it’s hard to imagine this being a staple of the stores of my youth!

Makes a change from the Lord of the Rings soundtracks most stores play these days doesn’t it!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2022 – 21st December – March of Cambreadth – Alexander James Adams

This plague continues to vex me, and so another three days need to be squeezed into one 🙁

Anyway here is an awesome battle song by Alexander James Adams that has been around for flippin donkeys and is utterly amazeballs!

For my Warhammer fans out there, it’s often used in fanon as the battle hymn of the Tanith First and Only!

So go check it out my friends!

Nerdy Musical Advent 2022 – 20th December – Tribbles – Debs & Errols

Today I am sick as a plaguebearer who has been blessed a hell of a lot by papa Nurgle, so I am probably not going to be able to do this wonderful piece the justice it deserves.

But here, enjoy, Star Trek good, song great!, good Taylor Swift parody!
